Hi:
I´m looking for my first rig. I´m looking for a used one (may be an EFP) so I´d like to know wich parts I should inspect carefully.
Wich parts on a vest/arm/sled tend to wear out and need regular service or replacements?
How could I notice if a rig had a good maintenance?

Thanks in advance
Alejandro

Alejandro,

I asked pretty much the same question recently. Here's a link to the topic:

Hi Afton!!
Thank you. I´ve read your question and found myself asking the same...I´m sorry!!
I´ve been following the forum for a while and wanted to ask something not that obvious...ejem...
Anyway I feel I didn´t get the answer I´m looking for.
For example, if I find an EFP arm, say ten years old, and it was never serviced, but the owner says it works fine, and in fact works nice...will it need service soon? will it break from a moment to another? Do the spring have limited life?

Thanks for your response.
Best regards from Buenos Aires
